A day of Action.
Nursing staff from across the North-East and Cumbria joined the demonstration at the Angel of the North, in Gateshead. It was one of 40 events organised by the Royal College of Nursing, which was the second day of its planned “summer of protest”. The one per cent cap on public sector pay rises was imposed by the Government in 2010, which the RCN says means nurses have effectively suffered a 14 per cent pay cut in real terms. I was asked to go along to the peaceful protest and cover the event. As you can see my image made the front page of the RCN national magazine. #well pleased 🙂
